The 2020 Diversity Initiative is a fundraising initiative seeking to bring additional and diverse voices to current HBA membership. Funds would cover the membership fees of younger scholars – undergraduates, graduates, and post-doctoral students, from minority and/or international backgrounds – to join the HBA for a period of two years. Given that HBA student membership fees are currently $60, a modest fundraising goal of $2,400 would cover two-year memberships for 20 new student members!

Once we close fundraising in 2020, we will put in place an application process to distribute the donated membership fees.  We hope that the generous pricing for the 2020 Annual Meeting registration will prompt you to engage in this Diversity Initiative.

All donations received using the link below will be directed toward this initiative.
